....that's Mum's in need of sleep in case you didn't know!!
So last night A woke for a bottle at 2.40 and then refused to go back to sleep for 2 hours ....He then woke at 5.20 for his next feed, and O promptly woke for the day at 6.40 ....I am done in and running yet again on no more than 3hrs sleep!! I expected the newborn days to be crap but this is royally so compared to when O was teeny (mainly as can't catch up during the day as you've a toddler to entertain too!)
Any other mums on the MINOS bench? x

Oh yes! Until 2 nights ago E was perfect. She'd go down between 10 and 11, wake at 3ish for 2 hrs, then sleep again for 2 hrs. Last 2 nights it's taken her ages to get to sleep (well past 11) and she's woken at 2.30ish and stayed awake. Aaargh! Daytime she only naps on me, so I can't even catch up then. I feel your pain!

I'm not on the bench today but sending sympathy your way. I'm dreading the first weeks of being alone with newborn and toddler...!

I have a 13 month old and I am still in sleep deprivation hell. Hoping its a phase.

My husband has said I've turned into a machine.
2 hours sleep in a row and I am a new woman. There have been many nights where I have had less than an hour yet somehow plough on. One baby settles and the other wakes up. It's really fun when both are grumpy. Naat.
I am a MINOS.

Ducky, I doff my hat to you. Twins must be exhausting. And I think you're bf so can't down coffee by the bucketload? Sad times.
I'm not on the bench today (10.30pm-4.50am, woo-hooooo!) but frequently am.

All I can say is U will be four in November. I have started using MINOS as my username for things...

I'll be on the MINOS bench today. O and L decided to clamber into bed with H and I halfway through the night, L fidgeted so much and managed to kick me in the head and Woke H up properly so he's up too (DINOS?). O back in his own bed now but L still in with me as she wakes when I try to pick her up. We're off to the zoo this morning, so fat chance of a sleep for me.

I feel for you all ladies. Ducky - It's bad enough with a toddler and a newborn so hats off to you for managing with 2 babies!!
DS - hope you enjoy the zoo today despite the sleep deprivation. Colchester? We're considering annual passes at the mo.
Thankfully last night wasn't so bad. Slept pretty from 9-2 (as did I! ;-) ) and then back down from 3.15-5ish. He's asleep again now. No denying I'm still shattered but not a patch on what I was!

Yep, it's Colchester - love our Gold cards!
